i.MX51 and i.MX53 have different phys_offsets. Look at
arch/arm/mach-mx5/Makefile.boot:

zreladdr-$(CONFIG_ARCH_MX50) := 0x70008000
params_phys-$(CONFIG_ARCH_MX50) := 0x70000100
initrd_phys-$(CONFIG_ARCH_MX50) := 0x70800000
zreladdr-$(CONFIG_ARCH_MX51) := 0x90008000
params_phys-$(CONFIG_ARCH_MX51) := 0x90000100
initrd_phys-$(CONFIG_ARCH_MX51) := 0x90800000
zreladdr-$(CONFIG_ARCH_MX53) := 0x70008000
params_phys-$(CONFIG_ARCH_MX53) := 0x70000100
initrd_phys-$(CONFIG_ARCH_MX53) := 0x70800000
Compiling a kernel for i.MX50 and i.MX53 will work, but compiling a
kernel for i.MX51 and i.MX53 will and up with a kernel assuming SDRAM
at 0x70000000 which will fail on a i.MX51. We need
phys_to_virt/virt_to_phys runtime patching to get this right. This
will be merged in the next merge window.
